The SNDO latest forecast had expected a borrowing requirement of 0.9.
“The deviation is mainly explained by tax income being approximately 6 billion kronor larger than expected. In addition, the Premium Pension Authority has made a deposit of 4 billion kronor in their account at the Debt Office,” said SNDO.
The borrowing requirement for the 12-month period to the end of August was minus 105.5 billion kronor kronor (i.e. a surplus).
Government debt was 1.173 trillion kronor at the end of August.
